Crushed Shell Mulch

These clever little shells are so multi-functional, it’s very hard to believe they are a product of food waste that otherwise would go into land-fill!

Crushed and washed whelk, oyster or scallop shells are really good for mixing into the soil or compost to improve drainage. They also look shell-tastic as pot-dressing and actually provide a good barrier to prevent pesky little garden pests. Alternately they can be scattered around the base of plants for a highly effective slug repellent.

Remember to pour slowly when watering the plants so the soil stays snug under them.

Great for cacti, succulents and most houseplants.
